Our mission is to protect the habitat of Puget Sound tidelands from the underregulated expansion of new and intensive shellfish aquaculture methods. These methods were never anticipated when the Shoreline Management Act was passed. They are transforming the natural tideland ecosystems in Puget Sound and are resulting in a fractured shoreline habitat. In South Puget Sound much of this has been done with few if any meaningful shoreline permits and with limited public input. It is exactly what the Shoreline Management Act was intended to prevent.

Get involved and contact your elected officials to let them you do not support aquaculture's industrial transformation of Puget Sound's tidelands.

Gathering at Department of Ecology Planned for Monday, May 4, at 12 Noon

When: May 4, 12 noon
Where: 5500 Martin Way E, Lacey
Why: To show support for NOT spraying this neurotoxin - imidacloprid - on Willapa Bay's tidelands.

Two groups have announced a coordinated effort to gather in front of the Department of Ecology to demonstrate their resistance to the proposed spraying of imidacloprid, one of the neonicotinoid pesticides, on Willapa Bay shellfish beds and elsewhere. Information can be found at 2 Facebook "Event" sites, posted below:

The Coalition To Protect Puget Sound Habitat is a strong supporter of these two combined events. You can help show your support for their ongoing efforts to help protect Washington's marine environment by attending the May 4 event or donating to this group.

(Note: Protect Our Shoreline has left the Facebook "event planning" to those above, choosing instead to continue to provide information on a variety of topics.)
